You kids and your educational camps, clinics, and videos...

MONDAY, MARCH 13, 2017

I didn’t really have a “my day” but my gosh you kids have it easy to learn how to take care of your animals.

Back in my day…

If you wanted to watch Stierwalt talk about clipping you had to pay $40+ for a DVD.

Surechamp wasn’t putting out educational viral livestock management videos.

We didn’t have Gevlinger live broadcasts on every detail of managing an animal.

No, we didn’t have any of that.

We did everything wrong and looked like idiots.

Just as God intended.

Judges

Do you know which of the three huge Texas majors doesn’t get complaints about their judge being too fast or not qualified to judge the show they’re at?

San Antonio.

That’s not an accident.  The men who make the decision on who judges the show take that job seriously and you should thank them for it.

Dominant

There are about a dozen levels of “big time” in the steer show world.  There’s the people in your county who think anybody who goes to a major is “big time”.  There’s people who are “dominant” because they won their county show two times.  There are “big time” show steer people who did nothing more than spend five figures on a few steers.

There’s only one family that is so dominant that they can win a Texas major and have people wonder whether they were actually TRYING to win it this year.

The Mats

How long before some enterprising show equipment company develops cattle shoes to handle the slippery conditions related to the mats?

The San Antonio Staging Lines

Yes, there will always be people that have to wait in lines when there are over 1,200-1,500 steers and tack to unload.

But you’ve literally spent more time reading this post than some people spent staging to unload on Monday.
